After his engineering degree at Institut d'Optique and his Master degree at Ecole Polytechnique, Quentin Glorieux went to graduate school at the Paris Diderot University. In 2010, he earned a PhD on Quantum Optics at the laboratory Materiaux et Phenomenes Quantiques under the supervision of Pr Thomas Coudreau. During his PhD, he demonstrated the generation of multispatial mode entangled states using four-wave mixing in hot atomic vapors.

In 2010, he joined the Paul Lett's group at NIST in Gaithersburg as a postdoctoral fellow in the Laser Cooling group directed by Bill Phillips. Quentin Glorieux was awarded a Marie Curie European fellowship in 2011 to initiate a project on Multimode Quantum Memories with the NIST, the Australian National University and the group of Nicolas Gisin at University of Geneva.
Recently, his interest has been focused on the behavior of quantum information in dispersive media. In November 2013, Quentin Glorieux will begin a position of Assistant Professor at Ecole Normale Superieure (ENS) and University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC) in Paris as a member of the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel (LKB).
